Backstage at the Old Vic. This was quite a difficult shot to get because of the brightness of the stage door sign and balancing that with not ending up with the bricks being too dark. It was either over expose the stage door light or and get the detail in the bricks or expose correctly for the stage door light and lose the detail in the dark areas. I went for the latter.

When you look up at the backs or sides of theatres around London, many of the dressing rooms appear to be so tiny. This one looks a little more roomy.

  1. I’d say this is nicely balanced between the light and shadows. The level of black in the shadows seems appropriate and the highlights are not overblown.
